I really liked the way the helmet looked and appreciated the added visibility it would give me. Upon receipt I was very impressed with the helmet. Everything on it is at a level of quality I have not owned before. The fit of the shield stood out, as did the quality and ease of operation of the vents. Although I used the fit chart and video on revzilla, and my measurement put me between a Med and Large, the Large is still uncomfortably tight. I wore the helmet for quite awhile inside (because if you go for a ride you cannot return it) and just never felt comfortable in it. I'm not sure if I need an XL (out of stock) or if perhaps the shape is not right for me. I'm also not willing to pay multiple return shipping fees to keep trying helmets so I will go back to trying on before purchasing. All customer service from revzilla was fantastic, and I won't hesitate to buy items from them in the future...but I am unlikely to attempt to purchase helmets via mail order again without trying on one prior to ordering.
